If you run your own website you are probably also posting images on it from time to time. If you take ghacks for instance, you will notice that most articles contain at least one image in them to visualize the contents of the post and help with SEO. Most of the images that you post on your site get indexed by search engines which opens up a great opportunity for us. You can browse the images that were posted on your site using search engines.
Site visitors may also benefit from this. Say you stumbled upon a great blog about photography or a wallpaper site. You can use the same method to browse the images or photos published on it which may be faster than browsing the site's articles instead.
Just visit the Google Images website and enter site:domain.extension as the search term. To browse all images posted on ghacks enter site:ghacks.net into the search form and hit enter. Note that the results seem to be limited by Google to 20 pages with 24 results on each page-
While it does not seem possible to increase that limitation you can limit the images using the search tools link at the top of the results page. A click enables you to filter results by time, size, color, type or result type. You could for instance use the tools to only display images posted in the last 24 hours, images larger than a certain site or exactly of a specific site, or images that show faces, are photos or use line drawing.
Bing Images unlike Google displays the total number of results on the result's page which can be a helpful metric for webmasters as it provides them with an understanding of how many of their images are indexed by the search engine. The search query uses the same site:domain parameter to only display images published on the selected domain.
Bing loads images automatically once you reach the end of the page so that you never have to click somewhere to go to the next page. Bing Images limits the number of results as well, and you can use the search tools on the top to filter the results based on criteria such a size, color or type just like you can on Google.
Advertising revenue is falling fast across the Internet, and independently-run sites like Ghacks are hit hardest by it. The advertising model in its current form is coming to an end, and we have to find other ways to continue operating this site.
